Freddie Mac Further Expands STACR Program With SHRP Series

MCLEAN, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/06/17 -- Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC)

First STACR Reference Pool to Include Relief Refinance Loans
SHRP Series Debuts Discount and Interest Only Debt Notes

Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today announced another expansion of its flagship Structured Agency Credit Risk (STACR®) credit risk transfer program, a new series of STACR debt notes (SHRP) backed by Relief Refinance loans, including loans that meet the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) eligibility criteria, with marketed-to-market LTVs between 60 and 150 percent. The HRP series builds on the company's STACR DNA series for loans with LTVs ranging from 60 to 80 percent and its HQA series for high LTV loans (80 to 97 percent). In addition to introducing new collateral to the credit risk transfer programs, SHRP will issue discount and interest only (IOs) debt notes.

"We continue to evolve our flagship CRT program to expand our offerings and further transfer credit risk away from taxpayers," said Mike Reynolds, vice president of credit risk transfer. "Last month, we introduced STACR SPI -- a structure for investors who prefer a cash securitization -- and today we're expanding the STACR program for investors who want a longer maturity and seasoned collateral. More than one-third of our single-family credit guarantee book has some form of CRT coverage, and the SHRP series will help us to transfer risk on our seasoned loans."

Pricing for $200 million STACR Series 2017-HRP1:

Class                      Coupon                      Price ($)
M-2      One-month LIBOR plus a spread of 245 bps.    100.00
M-2D     One-month LIBOR plus a spread of 125 bps.    96.29
B-1      One-month LIBOR plus a spread of 460 bps.    100.00
B-1D     One-month LIBOR plus a spread of 250 bps.    87.26
B-2D     One-month LIBOR plus a spread of 300 bps.    45.86

STACR 2017-HRP1 has a reference pool of single-family mortgages with an unpaid principal balance (UPB) of approximately $15 billion, consisting of a subset of fixed-rate, single-family mortgages with an original term of 241 to 360 months funded by Freddie Mac between April 1, 2009 and Dec. 31, 2011. The reference pool includes loans with LTVs greater than 60 percent and less than 150 percent refinanced under Freddie Mac's Relief Refinance Program. Freddie Mac holds in its entirety the senior loss risk A-H bond and the M-1H bond. Freddie Mac also retains a portion of the credit risk in the M-2, B-1 and B-2 tranches.

Credit Suisse and BofA Merrill Lynch are co-lead managers and joint bookrunners.

Freddie Mac has led the market in introducing new credit risk-sharing offerings with STACR DNA and HQA programs, STACR Securitization Participation Interests (STACR SPI®), Agency Credit Insurance Structure (ACIS®) and Whole Loan Securities (WLS(SM)). The company has since grown its investor base to more than 220 unique investors, including insurers and reinsurers. Since 2013, the company has transferred a significant portion of credit risk on approximately $851 billion of UPB on single-family mortgages.
